Our organisation

Jean-Pierre Clamadieu is chairman of the ENGIE Group’s Board of Directors. The Executive Committee consists of 11 members, including 10 Executive Vice Presidents. This steering body of ENGIE is headed by Catherine MacGregor, Chief Executive Officer.

In a context of profound change in the energy sector, the Executive Committee implements ENGIE's strategic decisions and oversees the Group's operational performance in accordance with the guidelines set by the Board of Directors.

ENGIE's raison d'être is to act to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy through more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly solutions. This raison d'être brings together the company, its employees, its customers and its shareholders and reconciles economic performance with a positive impact on people and the planet. ENGIE's action is to be appreciated in its entirety and over the long term. On the strength of its raison d'être, the Group develops efficient and innovative solutions for individuals, cities and businesses by relying in particular on its expertise in several key sectors: Renewables, Energy Solutions, Infrastructure, Thermal Production and Energy Supply.

In order to become the leader in Belgium in the energy transition that will enable us to build a carbon-neutral economy, ENGIE masters all the energy professions: production, consumption optimization, research, innovation, maintenance, engineering, construction and project implementation.

 

ENGIE can rely on 5 subsidiaries in Belgium:

  • Electrabel unites all electricity production and marketing activities for electricity and gas in Belgium. Electrabel is also active in ENGIE’s financial participations on an international level.
  • Tractebel ENGIE is the engineering office which specialises in energy and infrastructures
  • ENGIE Laborelec is the energy research centre for ENGIE in Belgium
  • Synatom is responsible for managing fissile materials and nuclear facilities
  • N-Allo is the call-centre for ENGIE in Belgium

They all form part of the ENGIE Group.

Every ENGIE subsidiary in Belgium has its own Board of Directors and engages with unions. The biggest is Electrabel NV. The Board of Directors comprises members from the Group, as well as external members.

 

4 Global Business Units near to customers: Renewables, Energy Solutions, Infrastructure, Thermal Generation and Power Supply 

ENGIE's organization relies primarily on the GBUs in charge of operations at the country and regional levels. To ensure the best possible support, the support functions act transversally and are also organized by country and region. At country level, country managers play a key role in strengthening our local roots, our proximity to our clients and stakeholders, and in promoting quality social dialogue. In Belgium, this function is performed by Thierry Saegeman.

The country managers and support functions in the countries and regions are led by the regional hubs to accelerate collaboration between GBUs and improve the quality of the support provided to them to enhance their operational performance. This local and regional organization of support functions is managed by Transformation & Geographies.  

In addition, GEMS (Global Energy Management & Sales) is in charge of energy supply and risk management services to support our B2B customers in their decarbonization, while optimizing the Group's assets and thus contributing to value creation.  

Finally, the Belgian nuclear activities are headed by Thierry Saegeman. Given their specificity, like GEMS, they are not attached to a GBU.

In Belgium, ENGIE can count on 7,000 employees and more than 300 researchers to meet the challenges of the carbon neutral transition.

 

Health, Safety and Well-being at work

Health, Safety and Well-being at work are fundamental values to ENGIE. Since 1995, successive Global Health and Safety Plans provided a structure to the approach to Health, Safety and Well-being at work.

The company will rely on its Global Health and Safety Plan 2020-2025 to achieve its goal “zero accident”. The plan dovetails with a general approach focused on dynamic risk management and is the result of discussions with various stakeholders. It embodies the company’s strategy for Well-being at work for the next five years.

 

Whistleblowing system

The Group has a constant drive to deepen its commitment to ethics and therefore wishes to provide easy-to-use tools for anyone to report inappropriate situations or those that are not in line with our principles or current laws and regulations. In this respect ENGIE has put in place a whistleblowing System that is open to all employees and stakeholders (suppliers, sub-contractors, unions, NGOs, etc.).

This System supplements existing channels and strengthens the Group's Ethics and Compliance & Privacy efforts. It is open to anyone and is easy to use, confidential, and anonymous if need be.

Electrabel - Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the highest decision-making body in the company except when it comes to issues which, according to law or the Articles of Association, must be reserved for shareholders.
